After igniting a controversy over women’s health by withdrawing its funding for Planned Parenthood earlier this year, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation has once again started funding the organization, The Washington Post reports.
Approximately 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates will be funded this year, the same number that received grants last year, The Post reports.
The grants are for breast cancer screening and other breast-health services.
“We know that people have been upset and concerned about recent events,” Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun told The Post. “We’ve acknowledged our missteps and apologized. People need to know that we have not and never will walk away from women in need."
